on the u.s. national debt this fall. the plot is to tie the regular vote to extend the debt ceiling to the obliteration of the affordable care act. according to the plans leaked to right-leaning news organizations, any measure to finance the health care act would detonate a refusal to make good on american debt. the first time this has happened in the country's history. and the repercussions could explode the economic order. do the leaders of the republican party tend to go this far? dare to sabotage the american economy and much of the world economy in order to defund a program, the affordable care act which is the law of the land? and will they go to this drastic extreme to intimidate the u.s. congress or the president or both? if so, is this the extreme case where it trumps the most minimal loyalty to the common national interests where anything goes, where the ends justify whatever means there are to be had no matter how menacing to the country or the world? alex wagner is the host of "now" weekdays on msnbc. we've got a number of news resources out tonight, the "washington exam
the people in washington are doing. if we threaten the country, if it uses one weapon of mass destruction and it goes ahead and ignores us, what worth does our threat hold against that other country deciding whether to build theirs. is there any way we can convince iran not to go nuclear if we let syria so flagrantly go chemical. and anne gearan, correspondent for "the washington post," and jeremy bash. i want you first to start, secretary of state john kerry did an amazing performance today in certainly one of his most forceful and most passionate speeches i've ever seen him give, laid out the reasons this average afternoon for action against syria, including the first hard numbers on the death toll, numbers much higher than we had heard before. let's listen. >> we know that the regime has used those weapons multiple times this year. we know that for three days before the attacks, the syrian regime's chemical weapons personnel were on the ground, in the area, making preparations. we know that the syrian regime elements were told to prepare for the attack by putting on gas masks and takin
of voice us of the party want to see that. or shutting down the government or let the nation default on its debt. any of those out comes is poor. >> this might not be evident in 2014 because all politics are local and in those hyper partisan districts for rs and ds republicans could have a very good year and give them a false since of bravado. >> those are the duelling tensions. you have a bunch of house republicans tuned to the political whims in their own districts and those whims are different what the republican party needs on the national level. what might be a good strategy for 2014 status quo strategy could blow up. >> chris christie had some strongs words. in direct reference to bobbyin da who called the party stupid christie said i am not going to come and call you the stupid party. the alexandria is over and we need to move on. for our ideas to matter we have to yuan. because if we don't win we don't govern. and if we don't govern all we do is shout into the wind. he is right. this has got enlost. the sole purpose of political parties is to deliver election vick together, not be i
is the more the national party weighs in to push more electable candidates, the more it will be used against them. tea party candidates will say people in washington are coming down choose your candidates. we just run a pure conservative we'll win. that doesn't always work. there's an argument to be made that the republican party could have very close if not a majority in the senate right now had they just, you know, ran more electable candidates. >> thank you, sam stein. thank you, jonathan allen. coming up, the republican national committee votes nbc and cnn out of the 2016 primary debate because of their hillary clinton projects. it's promising to do something that it does anyway. so what's the point? also we all saw the picture this week of the rodeo clown with an obama mask. disrespectful, racist? not according to a lot of people on the right who say democrats can't take a jobe. and there's certainly a lot of bob filner accusers. and we have the latest, a grandmother who is here to tell us what happened between her and the mayor. and it turns out all you alien conspiracy theorists the g
calculated is probably not the word i would use, but i think he wanted to make sure that he true a line, was a bit more defiant. he's been getting a lot of grief behind the scenes saying you've got to sell this law better, you've got to do this. and i heard more clarity from him than i have in a while on this. of course, the real test of all this, michael, is going to be when he starts going on the road and proactively doing this rather than doing this when he's asked a question about health care but proactively going out on the road and selling this and selling implementation. he's going to have to. he's got to turn these poll numbers around, or he is going to find moving congress on this is going to be a lot harder. republicans just sit there and they look at the scoreboard. and they say, guess what, half the country thinks it's a bad idea. less than 40% thinks this law's a good idea. >> well, to your point, let me show some polling data on the issue of whether it's a good or bad idea. there it is, good idea 34%, bad idea 47%. chris cillizza, you know, i follow you in all your social
party republicans led by ted cruz of texas are making it very real threat to shut down the u.s. government if the law is not killed. apparently the strategy is being lambasted as silly, dumb, unachievable and political suicide. and the people saying those words are not democrats, it's the republicans in congress who are saying those things. and those criticisms are delicate compared to what's in today's "washington post." charles krauthammer, a pulp pulitzer prize winning conservative columnist says cruz belongs to the looney bin. "and this is krauthammer, this is nuts. every physical showdown has rebounded against the republicans. those who fancy themselves tea party patriots fighting a sold out cocktail swilling establishment are demanding yet another cliff dive as a show of principle, and manliness. but there's no principle at stake here. this is about tactics. if i thought this would work, i would support it, but i don't fancy suicide. it has a tendency to be fatal." as for manliness, the real question here is sanity, nothing could better revive the fortunes of a failing, f
